Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.



Tylene

Scheduling Coordinator

As our scheduling coordinator, I get to welcome patients to our office with a smile and ensure that all their scheduling and front office needs are met. I enjoy catching up with our patients every month and seeing how happy they are with their results at the end of treatment! I love the energy and fun atmosphere in our office and we hope that all of our patients feel the same way, too!

With our children grown and moving on, we travel whenever possible and enjoy trying new and interesting food around the world.


Alex

Orthodontic Assistant

I am one of the people who will help create your beautiful smile! I work one-on-one with our patients, whether it’s taking photos and X-rays at the start of treatment or taking braces off at the end. It’s a pleasure to watch our patients become more comfortable and outgoing while their smiles transform. I also love the light-hearted atmosphere of our office. Our team has a great sense of humor and there’s never a dull moment!

When I’m not helping patients in the office, you can find me happily adventuring with my forever boyfriend, cooking and baking while sports are on, training for half marathons, or maybe in Disneyland!


Cheryl

Financial Coordinator

I have been in the orthodontic field for over 20 years and absolutely love my job! I have the privilege of providing patients with valuable information about orthodontic treatment and ensuring all their questions are answered. I help coordinate the financial aspect of our patients' treatment and help come up with the right payment plan for each individual's budget. I want to make each person’s first visit as easy and informative as possible. What I enjoy most is watching our patients grow, gain confidence, and leave our office with beautiful, new smiles!

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my multi-generational family -- including my daughter Malerie and my son Cole.


Catalina

Treatment Coordinator

I love being a part of Dr. Borgen’s team. I have been in the dental field for over 5 years, and I have a tremendous passion for making people confident in their smiles. Prior to working in orthodontics, I worked as a mentor to underprivileged children and during that time, I developed a strong affection for service and helping kids and their families. Braces are a major commitment for both patients and their families, and I’m devoted to educating and providing a sense of comfort throughout the entire process.

In my free time I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest with my husband and son, and spend as much quality time with my family and dogs as possible. I also love trying new restaurants, wine tasting with friends and watching reality TV.


Carissa

Orthodontic Assistant

I love being an orthodontic assistant at Dr. Borgen’s office and being a part of her amazing team! I have been in the orthodontic field for over 15 years and just love what I do. With each step of the treatment process, not only do I get to exercise my passion for making patients feel welcome and comfortable, I get to share their excitement when they see their new smile for the first time.  Having the opportunity to play a part in making a difference like this in someone’s life is truly fulfilling!

In my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors, taking photographs and eating good food! I’m always on the hunt for a new restaurant to try! When I’m not exploring I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog. 


Amanda

Orthodontic Assistant

I LOVE MY JOB!!

I have had a few different careers in my life and by FAR Orthodontics has been the most exciting, rewarding, and fun career!! I enjoy getting to know the patients and parents and really feel like we are all part of one big family here with Dr. Borgen. The reward of seeing patients see their new smile for the first time when the braces come off always fills my heart.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. I’m always up for an adventure or road trip. When at home in my spare time I enjoy cooking and crafting. I look forward to meeting you soon!!
